Weekly travel photography competition
This is a BIG SHOUT out to any photographers out there that want to a chance to win some great prizes – including new cameras. Did you know that every week The Daily Telegraph runs a competition where , for example, the winner lat week got a Nikkon D3300 – not bad for easily emailing off a photograph that they took whilst on holiday in India.

Our customers, of which there are thousands, may like to take up the Telegraph on their offer. It is very easy to enter.
Send your picture, which must be at least 1Mb in size, along with a brief description, your name, address, telephone number, the date and location of the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org
A great way to shoot superb high-definition photos and videos. The Nikon D3300 is small and lightweight, 24.2-megapixel D-SLR is powerful, comfortable to carry around, and incredibly simple to operate.
The large image sensor captures the finest details with stunning sharpness, and superior low-light performance (up to ISO 12,800) frees you to shoot crystal-clear images in dark situations.
Take a look at the video demo of it here. The prize is subject to availability though and if you win you may be required to take part in publicity – who doesnt like free publicity ?
Especially as this usually means you have your image published in the paper edition of their Saturday Travel supplement.
The best bit of advice we have heard from a few photographers , is to shoot images fresh for the competition theme at the time. This fires your enthusiasm, and critically, your imagination, and produces much better imagery more suited to the theme. These images tend to win more often than the images in your stock which you think “should be okay” for the comp theme.
There are lots of photography competitions out there. They cover just about every style of photography you can think of. Some are judged by the public, while others are judged by an ‘expert’ panel.
Let us know what other ones you have entered – and of course – what you thought about them.
Best wishes and good luck
